O Rex gloriae

Luca Marenzio

O rex Gloriae, Domine virtutum,
qui triumphator hodie super omnes coelos ascendisti,
ne derelinquas nos orphanos,
sed mitte promissum Patris in nos Spiritum Veritatis
Alleluia.
O King of glory, Lord of all goodness,
who ascended to heaven on this day triumphant over all,
do not leave us as orphans
but send us the Father’s promise, the spirit of truth.
Alleluia.

Collect for the Sunday after Ascension Day
